I will list them again
Sodium Bisulfate: (pool additive like Aqua Chem pH down) no doubt used by some not so bright folks every day in their pools. sodium bisulfite is sold by some home winemaking suppliers for the same purpose. In fruit canning, sodium bisulfite is used to prevent browning (caused by oxidation) and to kill microbes.
In the case of wine making, sodium bisulfite releases sulfur dioxide gas when added to water or products containing water. The sulfur dioxide kills yeasts, fungi, and bacteria in the grape juice before fermentation. When the sulfur dioxide levels have subsided (about 24 hours), fresh yeast is added for fermentation.
Sodium bisulfite is also added to leafy green vegetables in salad bars and elsewhere, to preserve apparent freshness, under names like LeafGreen. The concentration is sometimes high enough to cause severe allergic reactions.[
That being said, I think (if one can eat it) that it CAN BE flushed. I would already be diluting it with water anyay.
Sodium Hydroxide: (drain cleaner or lye), available at all hardware stores and used by not so smart people every day to clear clogged drains and as such (and by its very nature) is meant to go down a drain.
RIT dye: used by some of the dumbest people on earth. I have used it many many times and alway dispose of .......... Yup you guessed it. Right down the drain
Battery or source of DC current: I use these daily. I will refrain from flushing this as it reusable (and because it would no doubt clogg the drain requiring more drain cleaner (the horror)
Aluminum: Seems pretty stable and is the part I hope to anodize so nope, I wont be flushing it.
Room temp Distilled water: I flush that stuff all the time. I think im good with that one
boiling water: See above. Boiling water down the drain frees up grease clogs too
Soap: Need I say more?
Rubbermaid tote: reusable
The above list may be why there has been no mention of disposing of the items needed.
LOL at "left to the professionals" How does one become a professional??? By doing and disregarding those that dispence discouraging words that would keep one from becoming a professional.
Back to my original question. If you have experience at DIY anodozing I would love to here your tips and tricks. If however you only have discouraging words, there are a host of threads seeking your input.
